Patricia Boinest Potter creates enigmatic artworks in the form of three-dimensional maps that she refers to as Isomorphic Map Tables and 1:1 Map Insets. Ostensibly representing a one-hundred-mile stretch of northern Alabama, these works also expand outward to the cosmos, then inward again into the dark energy of particle physics. The exhibition will include a series of six Map Tables and one hundred 1:1 Map Insets. The show offers a tantalizing mix of technical experimentation, metaphoric expansiveness, and curiosity in every square inch.
Curated by Mark Sloan, director and chief curator of the Halsey Institute, the exhibition also features a video about the artist and a 120-page color catalogue. This project is funded in part by the South Carolina Arts Commission which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts. The exhibition will travel for several years throughout the United States after it debuts in Charleston.
